The harvest period represents a long-awaited time for producers, marking the result of their labor and serving as a tangible emblem of their agricultural accomplishment. Subsequently, the farmers prepare their produce for sale to collectors, traders, or other buyers. Unfortunately, the revenue earned by producers is frequently compromised due to imprecise measurements resulting from manual weighing techniques. One such traditional method is Bush Weighing, employed to gauge the output of various commodities like corn, soybeans, rice, and more. This technique entails measuring the yield within a specific area.
Naturally, the bush weighing method often challenges producers, mainly when dealing with diverse commodities of varying sizes and weights within a given area. The inherent inaccuracies arising from manual processes that lack standardized weighing procedures further compound the issue of accurately assessing crop yields. Moreover, this methodology proves impractical for large-scale harvests, necessitating individual consideration of each yield and consuming substantial time to achieve satisfactory results.
Agricultural digitization has answered the bush-weighing problem by switching to a digital scale. Farmers still need accuracy on how much they harvest to determine prices and calculate their income from the crop. Digital scales can measure crop yields accurately without much time, so they can be used more efficiently and effectively for producers.
Empowering Agriculture with Integrated IoT Digital Scales by Koltiva
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a solution that has been around for a long time in the agricultural sector. IoT integration with digital scales can help farmers process measurement data more quickly and accurately. Measurement result data will be recorded in our traceability system, which can be monitored throughout the supply chain. Integrated digital scales help farmers manage fast, transparent, and traceable transactions.
Fast Transactions Integrated IoT Digital Scales enable fast and efficient weighing, minimize transaction delays and increase productivity.
Transparent Transactions IoT Digital Scales, connected to a traceability system, provide accurate weighing records that are accessible to authorized stakeholders, promote transparency and reduce disputes.
Traceable Transactions The traceability system integrated into the IoT Digital Scales allows stakeholders to easily track and monitor product weight history, ensuring accountability and regulatory compliance.
Digital scales can provide faster and more accurate measurement data by utilizing IoT technology. Recorded measurement data is stored in a traceability system that can be monitored throughout the supply chain. Integrated IoT digital scales enable farmers to manage transactions quickly, transparently, and trackable. The advantages include fast transactions, reduced delays, and increased productivity.
Our Integrated IoT Digital Scale Key Feature & Benefits
IoT Digital Scales have several features that can facilitate data collection, including:
